Compare, contrast and asses the ideas of Booker T, du bois, Randall and Marcus Garvey to overcome the challenges faced by African Americans in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

The Importance of Slave Narratives The year 1965 set to rest the existence of slavery in the United States of America, arguably the last significant era of slavery in history. This end was brought about through the bloodiest war to be fought on US soil since the Revolutionary War and the aftermath that led up to the passing of the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

One of the most useful ways of raising awareness to the injustices of slavery laid in the hands and minds of those who wrote slave narratives, telling their tales of woe and struggle. Illiteracy was high among slaves, mostly due to white owner’s fear of education leading slaves to revolt.
